Donkey Kong 3: Dai Gyakushū (ドンキーコング3 大逆襲) is a game developed by Hudson Soft in 1984. The game had versions for the NEC PC-6001mkII/NEC PC-6601, NEC PC-8801, and Sharp X1, all of which had differences between each other (palette and flow of gameplay, respectively). The same year, Hudson had released and would release Punch Ball Mario Bros. and Mario Bros. Special, respectively. This was the last Donkey Kong game until Donkey Kong on the Game Boy.
Like Mario Bros. Special and Punch Ball Mario Bros., the game is not a port, but more of a semi-sequel to Donkey Kong 3. Stanley the Bugman's ability to jump is removed, along with the need to protect plants, making it much closer to something like Galaga.
There are twenty new stages, looping back at Stage 21. Every five stages a Bonus Stage comes up, where Stanley must spray all the bugs before the time runs out. The game sees him chase Donkey Kong into the countryside, through space, and eventually into a city on an alien planet, with no conclusion to the story.
